I have a midterm coming up in my History of Ancient Israel course, and one of the topics we’ve covered in the class is the so-called “documentary hypothesis” of the writing of the Torah, which basically says that the torah has four different writers with four different source materials, two of the sources are referred to by two of Hashem’s names, including the tetragrammaton. The hypothesis itself has largely been abandoned in the field of biblical archaeology, but its highly possible that the professor will still ask a question about it. Should this happen, do you think the professor would accept me just referring to “hashem’s names” or do you think that I should be doing something else in case this happens? thanks for any help.
Theoretically what should I do if my professor asks me to write God’s name(s) on my midterm?
